Mixture rate for Trimec and 2 - 4 - D?

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the rough estimate mixture rates for 2 4 D and Trimec? I use a pull behind 15 gallon sprayer. This will be for a big wide open lawn area about 3 acres. Thanks!

Do you know how far you can spray with your 15 gallon sprayer?

I don't know about Trimec, but when I mix 2-4-D I go 8 ounces to a gallon of water.

8 ounces per gallon seems like alot. The broadleaf i use, when using a backpack sprayer for spot spraying, I use 1oz. herbicide/gallon of water.

I would suggest filling your sprayer up with water, drive around your lawn and spray the water out to get an idea of square footage that you can cover with a full tank.

After you figure out how many square feet you spray, check the label and add the amount needed.

Example...I cover 1 acre with my 24 gallon broadcast sprayer (43,560 ft2). The product I use says to apply at 1.1 to 1.6 oz/1000ft2, I apply at 1.1 oz/1000ft2 so I use 48 ounces of hebicide in my sprayer.

Hope this helps.

The variables are huge depending on the tips and pressures you are running on your sprayer. Always follow the lable directions first of all. Most 2-4-D Products are 1.5- 2 oz per gallon. I spray 200 gallons with 2.5 gallons of material and get 7 acres of coverage. I run at 4.5 mph 15psi using tjet stainless steel tips. Your sprayer manual should be able to tell you the coverages and tip size your sprayer has. Then you need to factor in the mixture rates for the product you're using to calibrate your sprayer.

Hotrod and Moose are dead on.

Just for another example, I use 56 oz of chemical in 12 gallons of water, but I cover 52k sq ft. Basically running at about 1 oz per 1000 sq ft by the time you count for overlap.

It's not how many gallons you're using, but how many sq ft you're covering with the gallons used.

Wish I had a $ for every time I misspoke or looked at the wrong part of a chemical label over the past 27 years and that's part of my profession! That's about the same 2,4-D concentration I used in my old pull type squeeze pump sprayer which worked great on dandelions in the lawn. In the new sprayer on the 4 wheeler I run about 16 oz. - 32 oz per 15 gals. of water, depending on what I'm trying to kill. It runs 15 gal./acre at 5 mph with the nozzles I have in it now so it keeps the farmer math simple.

Happy Birthday Boilerguy! Always enjoy your posts.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
